Paul McCartney fans in America who have been hoping he would be playing shows in the U.S. this year got some good news April 8 when he announced on his website the first two shows in the States for his 2014 edition of his Out There! tour.
McCartney will play June 19 at the New Orleans Arena and then a week later on June 26 at Louisville, KY, at Yum! Center. Word about impending U.S shows had been rumored for several days.
